I wish it wasn't limited time!

I wish it wasn't limited time!

Seriously. I don't even have the game yet!

Whose bright idea was it to bring limited time events to non-MMO games?

01-20-2017, 04:56 PM
Too little too late. I'm done with the game.

01-20-2017, 05:05 PM
That's not a very Nice thing to say ;)

01-20-2017, 05:12 PM
Yeah, this looks fun and cute, but me and Mr. Carny don't have FFXV yet.

01-20-2017, 05:14 PM
Oh yeah, I can see why this was top priority. Just what this game was missing! Now it will be the greatest Final Fantasy of all time I withdraw every bad word I ever said.

i really hope that outfit has a "no hat" option...

Anyone else played it? It's not bad for what it is. If you're expecting something mind blowing or enhances the story in any way - I don't know why you would - you'll be disappointed. It's an hour (or more if you want to grind prizes) of fun and light hearted content. A lot of the old mini games are back (eg new chocobo courses) but there's also a couple of new ones that require different skills such as memory games and riddle solving.

There's a couple of nice references to older games such as a Moogle theme remix and a quest is called Interrupted by Fireworks.

Also, order a dessert at the Square-Enix cafe. Trust me.

I'm pretty sure Tabata already mentioned there being short term, mid-term, and long term plans in regards to FFXV. Obviously, the more impacting things are probably going to be in the mid-term and long term plans, while events like this carnival are short term. I'm starting to see a pattern with the vocal part of the fanbase.

01-24-2017, 10:09 PM
This is really dumb for a non-MMO.

01-25-2017, 11:49 PM
Imo, this is the best part of the carnival.

01-26-2017, 08:22 AM
Agreed. It's self aware and funny.

01-26-2017, 11:39 AM
damn, i haven't even made it to Altissia in the main story yet, that's my next chapter and i don't want to break sequence by visiting a carnival in Altissia before the Story part takes me there... Catch22... dunno why devs treat these things like everyone's a speedrunner...

01-26-2017, 11:58 AM
If it helps, it's a totally separate instance of Altissia!

01-26-2017, 12:02 PM
Does anyone know how early in the game you can access this? It'd be a right shame to miss it!

01-26-2017, 12:12 PM
It's available on the main menu rather than through the actual game, so I'd imagine right away. You need to have a save file to sync it to (so your goodies and rewards get transferred) though.

01-26-2017, 12:13 PM
But I guess it would be pretty weird to visit Altissia as part of the festival before you get to go there in story, wouldn't it

01-26-2017, 12:14 PM
Yeah, it would take away some of the wonder of "oh my god look at this cool new city I've reached" which they go pretty hard on.

01-26-2017, 12:16 PM
Ah, fair enough. That's cool. Might drop in to do the LIMITED TIME FUN. Who thought this was a good idea. xD

01-26-2017, 12:18 PM
Hopefully they'll make these 'limited time' things more permanent in the future. It really kicks people who haven't got the game yet in the teeth.

01-26-2017, 12:28 PM
Why so soon after release? Especially on a game like this. I've spent 30-35 hours in-game at the minute and I'm only on Chapter 5! Some of us don't have a lot of spare time...

I'm not having the Altissia arrival spoiled for me so I'll have to give this a miss :(

01-26-2017, 11:06 PM
All I ended up with is two new uniforms. I got them just by going in. I don't think anything there is missable but maybe 1 or 2 easter eggs.

01-30-2017, 01:01 PM
So this event ends on Feb. 19th? Looks like I'll have time to try it at some point.

How are people finding it so far? Is there a decent amount of content?

01-31-2017, 05:54 AM
There is a few things you can do.

1. Chocobo Races (Two trophies)
2. A riddle game. (No prizes)
3. Take photos. (No prizes)
4. Find Mogs. (No prizes)
5. Fishing (There is new types of fish)
6. Learn two recipes
7. Find Chickobos. (No prizes)
8. Plus there is 3+ items you can get only by collecting Choco-Mog Tokens. (This is a paint job for the car, a chocobo egg which no one knows will do, and more I can't remember. Stuff like the ticket to see the firework show but that I believe lands you the egg. There is more stuff to do. I just can't recall.

02-14-2017, 09:10 PM
So... I rushed through the main events of this carnival my first time through. While supposedly I was to receive a Dream Egg among my key items, I didn't. As a matter of fact, after resting at the Leville, I'm forced to watch the fireworks forever and cannot leave without selecting Return to Title which has the consequence of not saving progress. I've tried this multiple times, always to the same effect. What am I doing wrong?

02-14-2017, 11:22 PM
The fireworks last a long time. You are not waiting long enough. I would try taking some photos and waiting it out. After the fire works are done you will get the egg as well as being able to explore again.

On another note, you get a new reel and rod for fishing. You can even get some lures that might be exclusive. After the fireworks show you can get a VIP ticket for 99 Choco-mog medallions.

02-16-2017, 04:45 AM
My first time, I sat and watched the fireworks for 20 minutes. It's repetitive and has no clear ending. How the hell long am I supposed to wait?

02-16-2017, 05:14 AM
By my recollection, you're given a prompt where you can choose to leave/stop taking photos after a while (it didn't feel like much more than 5 minutes to me). You may have accidentally clicked not to leave, or maybe didn't do something required to trigger the prompt (e.g., taking pictures).
